I'd be in there like a rat up a drainpipe, but perhaps I'm lacking in the danger gene department.

;-)


I'm older than you are, and worry about falling ill in some place where my cellphone may not function or I may just be too knackered to cope...

On the other hand, better make a mess where it makes little difference to the general scheme of things, than to play out the same mini-drama at home, and perhaps ruin a bed and a carpet!

I have been thinking about going to have a chat with the local fuzz and see if access can perhaps be arranged...

Well, I'm too old to learn how to use a cell phone, Rob, but I agree with the others: You've got a good eye!

Just make sure you're not alone when accessing these places.

As you know I spend much time in derelict buildings but I'm always with my personal minder. If things look particularly dangerous she will stay outside to raise the alarm if needed. I never - well, hardly ever - risk it alone.

Looks as if it could be really interesting.

Rob found a hipster hobby. Grow the right beard and you'll instantly feel 20 years younger...

I have the beard - whether hip or not I can't say - but reading that link and all about "stray voltage" put the hammer on the idea. Asbestos, too, is most likely there - it is an old stablishment after all.

Best keeping a long lens employed, or a drone (not that I have a drone, of course), seems nice and sensible.

Gosh, it appears to be risky.

Who would have thunk it?

I like verticals too, but it isn't that easy to find something that isn't too narrow when using 135 format frame cameras.

Today in let the tools choose the photo: this pedestrian pic of a box on a sill. The non-pedestrian part is that the lens is an early/mid 1950s Zeiss-Opton 50/1.5 Sonnar, with focus achieved via a Contax RF mount (internal bayonet lenses only) to M mount Voigtländer adapter atop a Techart M mount to Sony E mount AF adapter. In the early days of the digital era I figured it was unlikely I'd ever be able to use this lens in front of a sensor, much less via autofocus!

This is wide open at the Techart's closest focusing distance: ~70cm. Closer than you get on a Contax RF camera. And the Techart/camera combo will AF all over the frame, well into the zones of diminishing returns with this particular lens at f/1.5.

Lovely picture; at first glance it reminded me of those great cigarette adverts of long ago.

Makes my teeth hurt just looking at it. (But my inner kid wants a bagful of the stuff anyway!)

Hah! When my friend Susan saw the box she said it looked like the one her dad kept Cigarillos in when she was a youngster. :)

This spring's nascent lilac blooms were decimated by the ice storm we had 24 days ago, but here's one that made it through.

A longtime friend of mine is in town for business stuff, so we've been hanging out in the evenings. As with the Techart pic this is from his hotel room window. Full-res crop as the longest lens I had was a 135mm. Sony A7iii.
